Bedner's Farm & Greenhouse

Fall Container Gardening Ideas

We love fall mums, and grow thousands of them here on the farm, but they aren’t your only option for mixed containers.

Some other plants that are great for the fall include:

  • Celosia
  • Ornamental peppers
  • Creeping jenny
  • Coleus
  • Ornamental kale or cabbage
  • Pansies
  • Ornamental grasses or millet
  • Calibrachoa
  • Verbena
  • and more!


Plant a variety of these in the thriller-filler-spiller format, then add in a few gourds, cornstalk pieces, bittersweet vine branches, faux fall foliage floral sprays, or a scarecrow. Get creative and have fun with it!

If you’re short on time or want something specific, we’d be happy to do it for you. Click here to schedule a Custom Container Appointment with one of our experts.
